Nothing short of divine
Prague is no stranger as the location for big-budget action movies. And the film stars starring in them are, as stars can be, notoriously fussy. That’s why concierges send them to Divinis, an Italian restaurant top of the A-list. Join the stars and dine on such delicacies as guinea hen with olive or duck and chicory risotto. Naturally, all dishes are perfectly paired with the finest Italian cultivars. Divinis is also great for a pre- or post- theatre meal.

Beef and beer, Bohemian style
Occupying a 1920s former stamp-printing works, Kolkovna is traditional Prague from the get-go. Add to that its status as the Pilsner Urquel group’s flagship restaurant, and you know you’re in good hands, culinary and alcoholic. A buzzing place, you can wash down your favourite Czech dishes with the aforementioned lager, be it roast duck with sauerkraut, pork knee or fluffy dumplings. Just a stroll from the Old Town, ask for a table in the courtyard. It’s beautiful.
V Kolkovně 8, Prague 1
